Queer illustrator in London

Queer illustrator in London

Ego Rodriguez was born in Gijón, Spain, in 1976.

Queer illustrator.

His  current work is  focused on digital media. He holds an affection for watercolours, acrylics, inks and mixed media.

He is an autodidact, and his technique and style were chiselled from creative surroundings and a  kinship towards artistic expression.

His show Macho was featured twice in London 2012 and 2014, also in Pride events worldwide. However, Ego enjoys concentrating his efforts on editorial and smaller formats, and his work has been showcased in magazines with significant circulation, including The Advocate, Gay Times, QX, Attitude and Jarry. Online, Ego has contributed work for The Pigeon Hole and Swide.

Ego Rodriguez works has been described as : "Tom of Finland meets Warhol" owing to bold usage of bright colours and energetic strokes with a strong male theme. He plays with negative space and dramatic lighting. The audience is left to fill the gaps and create their own story.

He lives and works in London, for the last 26 years.

When not doodling he will be found reading some encyclopaedia of pointless information.
